    Dancing Mirrors?

    I need some portable dance mirrors. No, I ain't going being dancing in a pink tutu, but need some dancing mirrors in what my next project that I was drafted for entails.

    Once again it ain't about mirrors and pole dancing. Just need a few mirrors (3m in length X 2 m in height) for the dancers to learn about choregraphy.

    So far, I have been hitting zero on mirror companies here in Thailand. They are out there somewhere. You got any ideas and don't say google is your best friend. Been there, done that.

    Tailor shops and gyms both have mirrors that size. Maybe they can steer you in the right direction. ISB (International School Bangkok) has a dance program and has mirrors. BTW, you may have to try to find rentals; buying looks very expensive. If that doesn't work, go to the source and call some dance studios in town (there must be at last a few legit ones).

    ^Makes sense. I got all of my house and gym mirrors from the same folks who did all of the glass in the house. Don't know why I didn't think of that first. But, you are going to find this to be an expensive project.

    A reflection of the way things are.

    Had some mirrors made a couple of years back. Was about 250 baht per square foot for 1/4 inch glass.

    Check 2 or 3 suppliers, price vary a lot from one to the other.

    I just crossed the road in Korat to get around 3 times cheaper for the same product

    Probably a lot smaller than what hillbilly wants and beveled edges and stuff, basic price less than 100baht per square foot, obviously cheaper if you cut it yourself as this is also an additional charge, holes drilled is additional, etc etc.

    Hillbilly will need about 65 sq feet. I think the price for 1/8 inch was nearer the 100 baht you mention. They had a few choices for coating material as well. Went with the more expensive as claimed it would not flake off as easy as the cheapest.

    Shop around, sure prices vary greatly.

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    1/8 is 12baht per foot, a standard 3foot by 1foot is 36baht, that includes the cutting. Other sizes of 1/8th will charge extra for cutting.

    Hi Hillbilly

    I had 2 mirrows cut in Phitsanulok. I believe you live very close to Phitsanulok.
    The size of the mirrows were 1260mm by 620mm, beveled edges and I can`t remember what thickness.. I called in to one shop and got a quotte for 1500 bht not including the hanging hooks. The other one was more expensive. My wife rang them 4 days later and got them for 1300 including hooks. I don`t have the phone number handy because I am in Oz at the moment and can`t remember the name, sorry. We had to wait 5 or 6 days because the mirrowglass had to be ordered in from BBK because it was wider then 600mm. They are in Phitsanulok diagonally across the Pailyn Phitsanulok on Pra Ong Dam rd. The 2 glass shops are within 100 meters of each other.
    Rough position 16"49'13.21N --100"16'12.26E

    Cheers

    I doubt if 1/8" thick in big 3 meter x 2 meter panels will work. That would require some really delicate handling. The weight is going to be an issue. Very unwieldly.
    This is not something I would describe as 'portable'.

    When I needed something like this in the past I used mirror mylar professionally stretched on a frame but even then the maximum size was 4 x 8 feet.

    I don't know if you've solved your problem yet Hillbilly but I got a flyer today in the mail for ultra light large mirrors and it may be something you could use. They list a couple of websites:
    www.mirrorliteasia.com
    www.glasslessmirror.com

    Mail: sales100[at]mirrorliteasia.com
